Jewelry with a Purpose

So with this post the outfit details will obviously be linked below but more importantly I really wanted the jewelry to steal the spotlight of this post. I met Michelle and Sayra the sisters and creators behind the Bracha brand a few weeks back and I have to say they both have hearts of gold. In Hebrew "Bra.cha" means Blessing. The main purpose behind there company is that when you wear a piece of their jewelry you are reminded of how beautiful you are. A portion of each sale is donated to the A21 Campaign. It's a campaign dedicated to helping put an end to sex slavery and human trafficking. Something that many people may not realize is that there are more slaves in the world today than ever before in human history. There is an estimated 27 million men, woman, and children that are being held captive and are forced against there will. The average age of trafficking is 12 years old. This is an unimaginable life that these victims have to go through and sadly many of them will never be rescued. Every thirty seconds a victim is captured. The A21 campaign helps to educate, protect victims in safe houses as well as prosecute traffickers. Like most women I do have a love for fashion and jewelry but my love for helping a needing cause is greater. Being able to wear something beautiful but then also know that it is helping with such a terrible crime is a double bonus. I pray one day that there is no such thing as human trafficking but until then we can help support such campaigns as well as make people more aware. If you would like to know more about the A21 Campaign and how you can help you can click here. If you would like to view more of Bracha's beautiful jewelry you can click here!

Think Pink

Don't you just love a good long weekend! It was so sad when it finally came to an end. Back to the work week and more home repairs for us! Ahhhh we are getting so close you guys! I can't wait to share everything with y'all. Last night we put together some furniture and got some of the last minute things ready for this weekend. We are seriously hoping this weekend is the big move but we will see. If not this week though for sure the next. I'm so ready to get crafty and decorate all the little nooks and crannies. I'm sure first though we will take one veryyyy long nap in our king size bed! OMG can you imagine all the space. I can hear my spine and knees straightening as we speak.
Me + Jeremy + a 120 pound beast of a lab crammed smack dab in the middle of our current situation. Well, let's just say we are very cozy! I wouldn't want to be jam packed with anyone else but man the fetal position and the ever so awkward let's balance on the side of the bed position are getting a little... well let's just say I won't be missing it and I'm pretty sure they would agree. Any who I hope y'all had an amazing long weekend as well. For today's post I am featuring an outfit that I wore on a little double date this past weekend! It was super fun to pair it with a bright lip and some dainty layered necklaces. I fell in love with this pink floral kimono when I first saw it and let's get real it's still so flipping hot in Texas so the nice breezy fabric was singing my jam! Dear, mother nature when is fall coming?
I hope soon.
Sincerely, 
Lindsay
